According to Nepal’s official mountaineering body, Shehroze Kashif reclimbed the 8,163-meter (26,781-foot) Manaslu peak on Tuesday, making him the world’s youngest mountaineer to reach 12 peaks above 8,000 meters.
The Alpine Club of Pakistan said in a statement that Kashif, who is 21 years old, climbed to the top of Nepal’s Manaslu peak, which is the eighth biggest mountain peak in the world.
Karrar Haidri, secretary general of the Alpine Club of Pakistan, says that he and other hikers had already climbed Manaslu in September 2021, but their record wasn’t recognized because they found a different way to get to the top.
The “Rolwaling Diversion,” a new path that had made news, had sparked debate regarding the true summit of the mountain.
But alpinists all over the world praised the climbers’ method for making a new way to reach the real peak.
Kashif has already climbed the world’s two tallest mountains, Mount Everest and K2. He is the youngest mountain climber in the world to reach the top of Everest and the youngest climber in Pakistan to reach the top of K2, which is the world’s second-tallest peak.
Kashif, who is from Lahore, started climbing when he was 11 years old. He started by climbing hills between 3,000 meters (9,842 feet) and 8,000 meters (26,246 feet) high, then went on to climb Mount Everest and K2.
In 2013, when he was only 11, he climbed the 3,885-meter (12,746-foot) Makra Peak in the Mansehra area.
His 2019 trip to Gilgit-Baltistan’s Broad Peak, which is 8,047 meters (26,401 feet) high, gave him the nickname “The Broad Boy.”
